To Be Published
At i,he meeting of the city
council on Tuesday night, Mayor
Hutchin announced that the pro-
posed charter of the City of Nor-
man had been filed with him by
the Freeholders as provided by law
and that he had ordered its publi-
cation, and call for election upon
it. The document will appear in
Sunday, mourning's issue of the ,
Transcript, and to the end that
every voter may get a copy of it
and learn of its provisions, The
Transcript has arranged for an
"every house in town" edition of
that issue. It will take about two
ordinary pages of the Transcript,
and be arranged in such a shape
as to be easy and interesting read-
The regular routine business of
the city was about the only busi-
ness transacted, except that peti-
tions for some paving were submit
ted. They were laid over for the
present as it is thought there may
be others petitioned for and they
can all come under one resolution.
j Lots Moving in Bcssent Addi-
tion: Mr. and Mrs. Jas. D. Maguire
have purchased a pair of lots in
I the C. H. Bessent addition to Nor-
I man, just south of the Phil Kidd
| residence on South Elm, paying
$1500 for them. They give a most
desirable building spot, 50x140
feet, and face the University cam-
pus on the west. Dr. and Mrs. C.
S. Bobo have also purchased a
' pair of lots, joining the Maguire
'property on the south. I hey were
'the property of Mr. S. A. Ambris-
ter, and the Transcript learns he
has quite a number of inquiries
about other holdings he has in the
addition, indicating that there is a
"moving" spirit about Norman

was to be rigidly enforced, as the
warm weather coming on made it

vertisement last night, And the
same will be run in the weekly is-
sue. The Sellers Special Sales
System of Oklahoma City have
charge of the sale. Their adver-
tising is not of the over-promising
kind usually used* by Sale com-
panies, but on the other hand it
is the kind of advertising that has
a good, honest value ring to it.
Mr. Sellars and Mr . Clarke are
giving this sale their personal at-
tention. Their advertising, store,
stock and outside decorations show
that they are experienced men in
their line of work. They state
that Mr. Hinshaw of the United
Sales Co. Store has given the low-
est prices that they have sold
goods for at any place during the
past three years. If honest pre-
sentation and low prices count fer
anything this store will enjoy a
big, successful 14-day day sale.
Mr. Sellers is a believer in news-
paper publicity. He has had years
of experience in the advertising
business in a big way. We feel
feel grateful toward his compli-
ments regarding our promptness
in turning out their work and the
quality of news service of our two
papers. He will leave Saturday
night for Wichita. His partner,
Mr. Clarke, will remain during the
entire time of the sale. Mr. Hin-
shaw says he will back up ever>
promise made during this sale.

The Methodist Centenary: Ev-
ery Methodist is urged to be in his
or her place at church Sunday,
May 18th. Bishop Hendrix of the
Southern Methodist church has is-
sued, on behalf of the bishops, this
call to churches summoning all j
loyal Methodists in these words: I
"The hour has- come, God's hour |
and man's hour. Let the campaign
which open on May 18th be usher- j
ed in by a great church-going j
Sunday that shall fill all our
churches with crowds of worship-
ers and with the spirit of faith
and prayer. It is our Lord who
summons us to meet Him in the
place of worship." Your sons
gave their lives; you gave of your
wealth in this great war. The cat-
aclysm that involved the world
has been stopped temporarily.
These sacrifices must not have
been madu in vain. The church
must taka up the work of recon-
struction, Vyhat is the Methodic,
Centenary? A chance for you and
me to help redeem the world. C.

Oklahoma City, May J-).—for
the present, at least, Oklahoma
has had enough moisture and any ]

' week or ten days will do more
| harm than good to various gr«-
ling crops, according to Carl Wil-
1 liams, editor of the Oklahoma
'•The rain already has interfer-
ed with the first cutting of alfaUa,
and perhaps caught some of the
alfalfa down, meaning an inferior
grade of hay, but not altogether
unusual as the spring rains fre-
quently cause this trouble, said
Williams. „ ...
"The wheat is early. Cutting will
begin in the southern part of the
